Inc. magazine today revealed that DeAngelis Diamond is No. 218 on its inaugural Inc. 5000 Series: Florida list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Florida-based private companies. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Florida economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“We are thankful for Inc. 5000 recognizing the growth achieved by our high performing team members as they build innovative and complex projects and make a positive impact in people’s lives, doing what they love,” DeAngelis Diamond Co-Founder, David Diamond, said.
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in Florida. Between 2016 and 2018, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 302 percent and, in 2018 alone, they employed more than 56,000 people and added $12.6 billion to the Fl orida economy. Companies based in the Tampa, Miami, and Naples metro areas brought in the highest revenue overall.
“The companies on this list demonstrate just how much the small-business sector impacts Florida’s economy,” says Inc. editor in chief Scott Omelianuk. “Across every single industry, these businesses have posted revenue and growth rates that are beyond impressive, further proving the tenacity of their founders and CEOs.”
